You will have the sounds of Friday night racing under the lights at the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds for the next two years under a contract approved by the Kewaunee County Parks, Promotions, and Maintenance Committee on Wednesday. Under the initial agreement, the committee gave the green flag to Tracy Thrun to operate the track as its promoter for the next two years. Thrun has never been a racetrack promoter, but Kewaunee County Promotions and Recreation Director Dave Myers says he brings a wealth of industry experience to the role. Myers added that he is happy they have someone in place before spring.
The final contract details will still need to be approved by the Kewaunee County Board at its March meeting. The announcement comes on the heels of the Door County Facilities and Parks Committee awarding Sternard Motor Sports LLC a one-year contract to run its track at John Miles County Park in December. The group recently announced that the Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprints are heading to The Hill Raceway Labor Day weekend. Both counties entered the offseason searching for promoters after their previous tenants opted not to renew their contracts.
